Good for the heart!

(5 stars)

A lovely story typical of GLH, and well read. If you need a quiet, easy to follow story with a fairy tale ending, and good morals, with the Gospel thrown in for good measure ...give it a try. Thank you Librivox volunteers, one and all, who make it a blessing for those of us who just need to relax with a good story. You are a blessing.

So sweet! Maybe my favorite book by this author. Subtle reminder to put God above all else. He will walk with you. He knows what you need before you ask. He can supply all your needs according to His riches in glory.

What an incredible book. Although it is the typical story of gallant hero rescuing a beautiful, dainty lady, it has such a sweet wholesomeness about it. Grace Livingston Hill has such a way with words that I could just ‘see’ the story.

I absolutely loved this. Maybe I'm just feeling emotional, but I bawled like a baby throughout this story. Just the sweetest, cleanest story ever. It was balm to a tired heart❤

Another Wholesome bk by GLH!!

As usual, I enjoyed the story, the spiritual journey of the character and of course, the happy ending. Love the narrator!!

Western Missionary & Society Girl Romance

(4 stars)

Story us romance, not too different than most plots. Still, it is well written and well read. Focus on Christian beliefs part of the story, not in a beaten over the head manner. More an emphasis on seeking the best in oneself in order to be worthy of God and spouse. Pardon typos or mistakes in spelling, I cannot see the text in this box as I am typing it.

Another Favorite!

(5 stars)

I always enjoy listening to books by Grace Livingston Hill. They are always exciting, and yet have high morals. This one dwells on the joy that come from serving others and finding God's calling in your life, reminding us that if we serve God, He will direct our paths and provide us with every good thing.

Excellent Story!

The thoughts and emotions of the characters were vividly portrayed: each character became a real person. The story ended as all stories should about a man and a woman who release their will and way to the God who gives us the desires of our hearts!
